Jan, if you can think of giving more perks to the $25 and $50 tiers, you potentially could get a good percentage of those 200 backers to upgrade their donations.

I intend to upgrade my donation eventually, at a strategic moment, and maybe only at the end of the month when I get paid, but it would be nice if you could give us excellent reasons to do so. And I can only upgrade once because PayPal charges me £1 every time I contribute because it is international.

Also, many don't want the box (I don't), so perhaps there should be a $50 entirely digital tier. Perhaps Ghost in the Sheet as a freebie might help? Or I'm sure you can think of something else related to J.U.L.I.A.? Like beta testing maybe, or more extras only for higher tiers...

These are just suggestions of course, don't feel oblige. But it would be cool to encourage people to upgrade their donations. You could potentially get $750 instantly maybe and ensure future donators go straight to $25 or $50 instead of $7. Obviously you have not given them the incentive required since most went for $7.

Come on! Spice it all up! Time for a new update to get the $750 to reach the goal as soon as possible, so you can move on with stretch goals instead. The interesting part of the campaign!

Quote:
Come on people, help us with the adventure game J.U.L.I.A. on Indiegogo! Also help the indie developers struggling to get $5000 as their goal. We're almost there! This is a worthy adventure game, please also help the struggling ones:

http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/j-u-l-i-a-enhanced-edition/x/2569506

I feel so guilty for pledging so much for Dreamfall Chapters, and so little for J.U.L.I.A., I will up my pledge...


No more pretence, it must be stated as is. I just posted that on the Dreamfall Chapters' comments on Kickstarter. We will reach that $5000 goal within 24 hours! We must!

Thank you everyone!

and Roland, thank you for your comments and this great continuous support.

The perks are really tricky. The main problem is that what looks like $5000 will turn out to be $4650 after IndieGoGo deducts some money. Then PayPal takes away another percent. When it finally arrives to our account, our beloved goverment takes either 40% (or 19% if we are lucky and find a way around our stupid laws). So the worst case variant is that we'll get something around $2,500.

This way we won't have much money for physical pledges (and shipping them) if we want to fund the game and not go into another big minus. smile

I will have to really think about what to add, I believed myself that the custom hintbook and full soundtrack for J.U.L.I.A. (which is a lot of music actually) is well worth the $25 pledge if you consider that you'll get the Enhanced Edition which will have quite a lot of new contents already as we will hopefully reach the story extension stretch goal.

If you have an idea what could be added, help me there. smile We currently don't have rights for Ghost to give it like that so this won't be possible.

But! We are really excited by the progression and with the love we're getting for our little campaign.

As a side note - if you look at other Kickstarters, you usually see that we are much lower with the pledge levels in general which is the reason why the progression is slower.

Thanks, Roland Michel! You raised the campaign total to: $4,736!


And there you are, I am now an Astronomer (technically)! I love the added perk to the $25 tier:

Quote:
All existing and new astronomers will also get PC digital version of our puzzle game called J.U.L.I.A. Untold, which is a prequel to J.U.L.I.A. and contains 50 challenging levels, 5 story chunks and over 8 hours of gameplay itself! Music used in J.U.L.I.A. Untold will be added to J.U.L.I.A. soundtrack.


Jan, I knew you would think of something great for people to upgrade, and I think it already had a positive effect on the campaign after only 2 hours. Some already upgraded to Astronomer and others went straight for the $25 instead of $7. Now at 96% funded! We will now reach the goal within a few hours for sure... Yééé!

Edit: the goal is now reached! $5005! Now on to double it!

Thank you everyone!

This was a crazy week. We're not done yet, though. There are serious plans how to enhance the game's content and we'll be sharing some of the material with you.

Especially the Fullscreen exploration can impress the more point'n'click oriented players out there. smile

There are only 9 hours left on the Dreamfall Chapters Kickstarter campaign, and just about everyone is online in the comment section. So I thought I would thank them for reaching the goal and to let them know of the stretch goals (I am so wicked). thumbsup

Quote:
By the way, I know some of you contributed to the Indiegogo campaign for the sci-fi adventure game J.U.L.I.A. Enhanced Edition, I am pleased to announce they are now at 120% funding, $6,020!

http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/j-u-l-i-a-enhanced-edition/x/2569506

The goal has been reached and now they are on to the stretch goals: $7.500 – Story Expansion, $12.500 – Full Screen Exploration, $25.000 – PC, MAC and LINUX Unity 3D port.

We still have 34 days, it would be great to reach the $25,000 and turn this into an amazing indie adventure game. It is only $7 to help the campaign and get the game. They also updated the $25 tier, you now also get the prequel J.U.L.I.A. Untold and the soundtrack of both games (the developer Jan Kavan is a musician). Let's help the independent developers, especially the ones who have been ripped off by their publishers.


New update:

Quote:
To celebrate that ($6300), we would like to invite you to a live event which takes place on 13th of March @ 2PM EST. It starts on Youtube at www.youtube.com/CBESoftwaresro

You are going to meet amazing indie stars like Agustín Cordes (Scratches, Asylum), César Bittar (Cognition, Moebius) and Steven Alexander (Infamous Quests). This event will be hosted by lovely Say Salazar and the rumor has it that I’ll appear there as well. smile

After this event will immediately follow reddit’s IAMA (3 PM EST) where you’ll be able to ask me anything.


I think this means 7 pm London time.
